The 24-year-old was expected to make a deadline day move to Anfield from Ukrainian side FC Dnipro, but the deal failed to materialse, and Konoplyanka feels a little bitter at the outcome, telling reporters (via Goal.com),

“Not at all upset! Well, I will not hide it… there is a little resentment.

The winger is looking on the bright side however, and is eager to show his worth in upcoming games,

“We’ll play Tottenham [in the Europa League], one of the best teams in the English Premier League. We will go for it. I want to show my best.”

There was real confusion last Friday over Konoplyanka’s proposed transfer, with the deal obliterated when the window slammed shut at 11pm, after the winger reportedly passed a medical and agreed personal terms.

FC Dnipro have claimed that the lateness of the transfer had doomed it from the start, but have also said that they expect Brendan Rodgers’ side to return for Konoplyanka in the summer.

Dnipro’s executive director Andriy Rusol said (via the Daily Star),

“There was no time to organise the technical transfer.

“If Konoplyanka continues in the same train and play the way he plays, it’s a matter of time before he goes into a good European club.

“A thousand per cent sure that Liverpool will attempt to buy Yehven in the summer.

“And with plenty of experience in dealing with our club, that will make it more organised and likely to succeed.

“If they had come a little earlier, things would have been different.”

What do you think? Are there any Liverpool fans out there that feel the same resentment? Are you hoping Rodgers returns for the winger in the summer?Let me know in the comments below…

  1. That’s ridiculous at the bottom of the article about Brendan Rodgers leaving it to late for a deal?! Ian Ayre went out there in Tuesday/Wednesday. Plenty of time to finalise the deal. The only way the deal wouldn’t have gone through is if the club itself wanted more money for the player (medical and personal terms were already agreed). By the summer Liverpool will know if we are in the champions league or not and if we are we will be able to attract better players than kono. I doubt liverpool will try again for him.

  2. its really heart breaking stuff,one should be a real fan to feel that, sad,fear,joy ,anxious,waiting till the last mins to the deadline here at mauritius we were around 3 am in morning just imagine, not sleeping at all after the deal collapsed.i would like to ask FSG why ho brought LFC wat are ze reasons behind it, and his answer would be, returning back the glory he deserve.so where his contribution then buying Handerson 20 M,ok now he is improving,what about Aspas n l Alberto,Iloris, money wasted bargain players, he could have save ze money n buy and buy one or two proper players who were our prime targets, i would say ze like of Hazard,Willian, Keita,Costa,Hughs,serguson.Eriksen,Sala.Kanoply,Yes we should back to him

  3. he is a good player and i think the best option is for rogers to go for him, i love liverpoolfc so much,so there lost is my lose as well,rogers should try all possible best to sign him in
